Patch Time
When things like this arise, I think most about people running the older versions of their operating system. Apple took longer than expected to push out the OSX patch, but they did in the end push it out fairly quickly. The iOS patches I thought were done very quickly once the new had broken. I wonder then about similar types of Windows problems and whether Microsoft would, for example, patch Windows XP, which is still in use on a depressing large number of computers.

I heard reports saying that this was a failure in their software development process. I guess that's true, as it means they did not fully test that element after making changes. Once passed through, it seems unlikely that it woudl be caught by most automated methods.
